  1. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    As soon as I have a little spare time, im going to reach out to Ft Myers Marine(unless y’all have any other recommendations). I’ve touched 57 light in my 22 but always have struggled to get full rpms. And when loaded it barely gets 50-51, my tower is a sail. I spin a 20p 4 blade PT so an extra 60-70 hp might be just right
  2. Nizpro Tune // 250 SHO

    From guys who have done this....what’s the turnaround time? I’d like to get my 250 bumped up
  3. 2019 22 TRS Engine choices

    Love my old 250 SHO, I need the power bc I have a very heavy 22 TE with a tower. That being said, I’d have a 250 regardless on the next boat. I’ve seen some pretty impressive numbers on fuel mileage (and speed) when I’m running by myself and dialing it in.
  4. NEW red tide and water condition report

    Man, that’s good to hear. Maybe this mess will push off and clear up. I feel bad for all the residents down there dealing with this. I’m just a tourist and love fishing down there and I’ve been glued to the situation. Definitely does t sound like an easy fix

    I have the free MyRadar app on my phone and it shows your exact location and updates radar every 5 minutes. I’ve made decisions to sit tight and let some storms pass and also made decisions to haul tail to the hill to beat the weather. We did get caught by a weird storm about a month ago one morning, everything was offshore and hanging on the beach but bloomed and basically begin to surround us. We rode way up a river and sat at a buddy’s neighborhood dock

    My bride caught her first 2 trippies on her birthday yesterday. Had a fish break her off as well. Fun day and now she’s hooked
  7. Sedek Question

    The castaway customs guy should be coming by my shop within the next week to scan the Cathey Pathy. Shall I give him the go ahead to get the Mav going as well if you haven’t scooped it up yet?

    Caught a couple more slabs after work yesterday. Well worth fighting the bad weather for these 2 25”ers. We had one come off as well but I’m not complaining
  9. NEW red tide and water condition report

    This is my first time really following a red tide and immediate impacts. It truly is disgusting what gets done to a beautiful place. I have a question for those that have dealt with this before, how many years does it take to get back to normal? Was there enough fish kills to have major fishery impacts down the road?
  10. NEW red tide and water condition report

    Man, that’s rough. It was getting mighty nasty by the time we left Saturday. I just read an article on all of the Dead Sea turtles washing up on Sanibel as well. All of this makes me want to puke
  11. Totalscan Transducer location on 06 22TE

    I mounted my totalscan transducer where that small one (on the right) in the pic is mounted. I have had no issues other than spray but I fixed that by moving it up. I’ve never tried the pocket. side note, first totalscan came apart after screws pulled the threads out
  12. Red tide

    What drummer said....I didn’t mean to sound doom and gloom. The smell caught me off guard but haven’t noticed it today. I am not on the water as much(8 month old and 5 year old) this year. All I did was speak to couple folks. Appears better today and all NOAA red tide forecasts look great. Headed to Cabbage Key tonight for dinner. The snook don’t seem to mind on the sunset bite
  13. Red tide

    I’m not going to come out and say anything is bad or degrading but on the way back from Captiva for lunch today I noticed a weird smell a couple brief times. Also water in the bay or pass wasn’t as pretty as yesterday. I spoke with a guy who was renting on backside of N Captiva and he said he thought the smell was a hint of red tide but him and his kids were swimming. The wind shifted a little and maybe it stirred some of that mess up. Beachside was beautiful and cayo costa appeared to be busy again. Beachside of n Captiva was packed on the new sandbar and the water down near redfish pass looks better than Captiva pass. Bait was plentiful especially near redfish pass. I still think things are on the mend
  14. Red tide

    Been hanging out the house all day. We launched yesterday around 5:30. Looks to be business as usual. 20-25 boats over on south end of cayo costa. Captiva pass has been busy, saw a ton of bait this morning in the pass. Snook have been cruising up and down. I wouldn’t know anything was in bad shape a couple of weeks ago. We haven’t seen a single dead piece of bait or dead fish. I’ll post again when I get on boat
